Everyone's Favorite Spinach Salad with Poppy Seed Dressing

GOHIPP

"This recipe quickly becomes the favorite of pretty much everyone that tries it. It's so tasty, it's easy to make, and the ingredients are interchangeable! You can use the dressing immediately or make it in advance and store in refrigerator up to a couple of days. I have substituted pears and mandarin oranges for the strawberries and feta instead of blue cheese. Be creative! YUM!"

Very yummy. Makes far more dressing than you need, but we made more salad the next day and thought the day-old dressing was even tastier. Will make this again, without a doubt.

I had a feeling that any dressing made with white vinegar would be too sharp, plus I had my doubts about adding Worcestershire sauce to a sweet dressing. Also -- white sugar? Really? I made it...
